mayor, will you join us for a photograph, please? >> thank you very much, ladies and gentlemen. one more round of applause. [applause] if you look around you tonight, you will see poster board. celebrating, acknowledging, the first asian americans. we have the first asian-american actress in hollywood. the first asian-american nba player. the first members of congress. these interns are the future of our community. they are the reason why we are here today. we're also here to celebrate and recognize one of the greatest members of our community. this year it is the first year we are giving the lifetime achievement award. the lifetime achievement award this year is going to secretary norman manetta. he is a trailblazer. a man who paved the way for many of us. he was the first asian-american mayor of a major city. he was elected to congress 10 times. he was the first person to serve two presidents in a cabinet. first as secretary of commerce to president clinton, secretary of transportation to president bush. it was on 9/11 that secretary mineta showed us what he was made of. he made t
diligence and hard work. i will never use drugs. the chinese team is extremely strict on doping control. so i can assure you that it is not an issue with us. and women's gymnastics, the team finals happening right now. if the u.s. wins, it will be their first team gold since 1996. we'll keep you posted on that one. i want to go back to the swimming. the women's 200 meter freestyle happening in about two hours. 17-year-old american missy franklin, she is taking on the world record holder, that is fredricka pell greeny of italy. in men's swimming, michael phelps could win two medals today. first up, the 200 meter butterfly. if he pulls it off, he jumps back into the pool for the relay. if he wins both, he'll have a record 19 olympic gold medals. wow. zain has the best assignment ever. wish i was there. missy franklin this young american swimmer. there is a lot to her story and some of it involves a little embarrassment for nbc as well. tell us what happened. >> yeah, it was a bit of a messup on nbc's part. basically they aired a promo of her saying that she had won gold in her first time ever
embarrassment for nbc as well. tell us what happened. >> yeah, it was a bit of a messup on nbc's part. basically they aired a promo of her saying that she had won gold in her first time ever here at the olympics, 100 meter backstroke. i watched it. it was really an amazing race. she did so well. but that promo on nbc then aired right before the race itself. so anyone who tuned in would have actually knew what the result was before they could actually watch it. so there has been all this outrage and nbc, you're spoiling the olympics for people. and hash tag came up callcalled called #nbcfail and everybody is complaining about this. what is interesting to note is that if this had happened four years ago, tape delays wouldn't have become such an issue. in the world of social media, twitter and facebook, everyone is getting results instantaneously. so the whole delay is causing a real issue for so many people, but, suzanne, you can watch it live streamed on nbc's website. so that's one option. and another option is just to go on a twitter, facebook, social media diet. and the other is to come to lon
the seating. you do not just sit with a black person or a white person. it is about all of us, or none of us, and that is the bottom line. it has to be that mentality. >> it is a way to control the prisoners. it takes the pressure off the guards and everybody else. they say we want to stop violence, but you promote a violence by segregating. when an individual comes, the first in the asking, where are you from? what is your nationality? that is how to divide and conquer. that is the way the united states is made up. that is how you work. north and south vietnam, for instance. they divide people so that the pressure will not be on them. that is how i see the system. i see it in prison, how they divide inmates. it is scary if inmates unite, and they do not like that. when i first come to prison, it will be a big thing if i went and sat with the blacks. it would be a big think if they caucasian sat with the asians. we only did that one time, where everybody got together, and we got what we wanted. when you unite, you can conquer.

. that is a quick overview of how we use the wii. questions? the question is, do you have to have a special computer to connect the wii to a television? the answer is no. this box is the council. you plug the cd into it and plug into the tv. any television will work with the wii. it works well with a big flat screen tv because you can see the action better. good question. one more question. allen? the average cost? if you are one of the contract in city senior centers, this is part of our broadband technology grant, the average cost is zero.

with the war on drugs was leading us in the wrong direction. the impact that it had and not only in communities -- quite frankly in our entire community was creating a situation which doesn't necessarily make us any safer and frankly, i think we have criminalized an area i think should be really looked upon as a health issue more than as a criminal issue, and i think consequently, a lot of the solutions we have tried in the last 2 1/2 decades have taken us to a place where today we cannot afford it economically. i can tell you that socially we have been broken for many years, but now the economic peace of it has come to play and that's probably why, quite frankly, we are reacting. i think we can deal with being socially bankrupt much easier than we can deal with being economically bankrupt. i think now we've come to the point where there's an intersection between the two. having said that, i also think it's important to recognize simply taking people that are broken, because most of the people that have drug addictions are people that are broken, and just simply releasing them on to the streets

other republicans. what i'm told is that franks said his regret was mostly in using the name and that it overshadowed the general point that they were trying to make. i should also say franks told republican colleagues that he still stands behind that question and what he wants the inspectors general across the government to investigate. you know, you talked about the fact that republican leaders, at least some of them, have really shunned this leader. i talked to a pretty conservative congressman today who said a lot of us, conservatives like me, are saying are you kidding me? they're idiots for making this mistake. why go after hillary's body person without having rock solid evidence. >> you said this whole thing was a wake up call. how so? >> well, i think what it really points to, and i think that the events of the so called mosque at ground zero, that, you know, we have a kind of deep anti-muslim here in the united states. if you look at poland, you find out that a considerable number of people are willing to believe anything about islam and muslims. people like newt gin
